About this trip

 Pura Vida! means “simple life” or “pure life”, but here in Costa Rica, it is more than just a saying—it is a way of life. Costa Ricans —Ticos— say Pura Vida to say hello, goodbye, everything’s great, everything’s cool. Costa Rica has repeatedly been named one of the happiest countries in the world, and we need more of that! 

Join Nicole Hansult in another slice of paradise to enjoy a week of fun, relaxation, health, adventure ,connection, and education on how to live a better, healthier life FOR YOU! 

Nicole will guide you to optimize your health and wellness with individual support in nutrition, corrective exercise, stress management, positive mindset, and tools to have the balanced, healthy, active life you deserve.     

This week isn't about being restrictive or dogmatic about your health.  This week is about tapping into your own intuitive knowledge and learning how to live and enjoy life in a balanced way...allowing yourself to color outside the lines and feel free and joyful on vacation while also supporting your body's overall health, wellness, and alignment.  Savor this epic week and return home with useful skills and resources to keep on living well.


This modern-style boutique hotel is less than a 5 minute stroll to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, featuring miles of unspoiled white sand along one of the largest sea turtle protected reserves in the world. 

Equipped with a sparkling pool, WiFi, and A/C, you’ll be able to enjoy comfortable accommodations while still experiencing a feeling of being unplugged and tucked away in this charming stretch of the coast.


We have a full-service restaurant + bar to prepare meals and beverages during this retreat. Enjoy fresh, locally-sourced ingredients with delicious options for all dietary needs and preferences.  Experience delicious tropical fruits, fresh caught fish, local produce, and a thoughtfully crafted menu to keep you satisfied.


Playa Grande is a beautiful, uncrowded beach community that lies just north of Tamarindo along the Pacific coast of Northern Costa Rica. It has a great laid-back vibe and retains the " off the beaten path" feel that Room to Roam seeks. 

 In addition to one of the most consistent year round surf breaks in Costa Rica, Playa Grande is one of the largest turtle nesting grounds in the world. 


A day trip to explore one of the many beautiful waterfall adventures that Costa Rica has to offer.  Enjoy hiking around and catching the beautiful natural scenery, swiming in the clear waters, and reconnecting to the healing elements of nature.


Nicole Hansult brings over 20 years of experience, training, and certifications in guiding others to use a holistic approach to feel + live their best.  She is a Certified Physical Therapist, Master Health + Life Coach, and overall inspirational, authentic, powerhouse woman.  


" I show busy men and women how to break free from their old self-defeating habits

Room to Roam is an all-inclusive retreat service provider that streamlines the retreat leading process and connects people to amazing experiences off the beaten path. Currently with locations in Southern Nicaragua + Northern Costa Rica.


What an unbelievable experience! I fell in love with the beauty of the land and the community. Room to Roam does an excellent job coordinating every detail, so you don't have to worry about anything. And I can't say enough about the staff. The staff are like a close family, genuinely friendly and so helpful! This retreat experience was like none other. There were plenty of activities to choose from, making it a unique "choose your own adventure" experience. I'll definitely be back in the future.

Can’t say enough good things about Room to Roam and the whole staff in Nicaragua. The food is next level, the staff is so warm and friendly, I was instantly at home. They guided me through the travel process and I felt completely safe as I traveled somewhere new. The surfing was incredible and there is just some kind of magic down there! I’ll be back!

Room to Roam was an amazing experience all around! Accommodations were clean and comfortable with operational A/C, fans, wi-fi, and running hot water! The common spaces were awesome, and the pool was always ready. All the staff on site were welcoming and delightful, and took care of guests' every request. The food was absolutely incredible! Everything on the menu was on point and they handled special requests with ease. In our small group we had a gluten-free carnivore, a gluten-free vegetarian, and a gluten-loving vegetarian. We each had enough options to never have to eat the same meal twice (though some found favorites and stuck to them). I endeavored to try as much as possible, and there wasn't a single dish that didn't completely deliver beyond expectation. The bartenders, spinning the fun music and videos, also spun excellent thirst-quenching drinks from smoothies to cocktails, delivered with a smile. Ashley's yoga and Kate's pilates sessions were just right, and the hour-long massage left me blissful and pain-free. The owners, Chance and Kate, took on all the worries to make sure our experience went smooth - including adjusting rooming arrangements, transportation, border crossings, and covid-testing. And their dogs, Iris and Tarzan, were delightful and wonderful companions for walks and naps. But the one staff member deserving the biggest SHOUTOUT was our Surf Guide, Ramone. Not only did he gently coax us out in all kinds of conditions, but he was attentive to us in the water and always made sure we were in the optimal spot for catching waves. He helped me tremendously with timing and technique, calling me into waves, and instilling my confidence in bigger waves, and in less than optimal conditions. I am grateful for the breakthroughs that came from surfing with both Ramone and our host, Lorenzo (whom I credit for getting to my feet on the shortest board yet!). Our group was quite small (5 guests at the start and then just 3 for the rest of the week), so it was like having the "resort" to ourselves with a high staff to guest ratio. That said, I still think a larger group would not feel any less personally cared for. You really feel like you are visiting friends: fresh home-cooked meals, no need for locked doors, wi-fi connectivity, laundry service, and pet dogs. It's a home away from home, plus plenty of ROOM TO ROAM.
This trip was such a blast! Room to Roam set us up in Hotel Onda, which had such a cool, upscale hostel/boutique hotel vibe! The staff were super friendly and our excursions were amazing. I especially love the waterfall excursion and learning to surf with Javi my surf instructor! Kate and Olivia were so hospitable and always checking on us to make sure things were going well or if we needed anything. I'd definitely do this again!

I can’t say enough about my wonderful experience with Kate, Ashley, Lorenzo and the whole staff at Room to Roam! This trip was truly magical. I was a little nervous to travel for the first time since COVID. Kate took such great care ushering me in to Nicaragua. I was very stressed at home prior to leaving and Kate kept taking things off my plate as I prepared to leave. Upon arrival we were greeted so warmly by the staff. I was instantly relaxed. Marco’s truly does make the BEST passion fruit margarita on the planet! My intention was surf and boy did I fall back in love with surfing, but I am really walking away with so much more- a complete reboot for my body, mind and soul! I’ll be back again soon! PS the food is out of the this world! Every single meal…. Mouth watering!
